Starlight Express ... a steam train and jazz on a Friday night soon

Railway Preservation Society in Ireland poster for Steam and Jaxx trains

The Railway Preservation Society of Ireland are running a series of Steam and Jazz nights on Friday evenings in June and early July.

Their restored steam train will leave Belfast Central Station at 20:10 and will puff up the track to mystery destinations where you’ll be able to dance to the New Orleans jazz of the Apex Jazz Band before returning to Belfast around 23:45.

Friday 10, 17 and 24 June; 1 July. All tickets £24.

Get on your straw boater or posh frock and join our steam train for a Jazz mystery tour. Our train will include our Dining Car, complete with full bar, hot and cold drinks and snacks. A competitive wine list and bottles of wine will be available for purchase (as with all our trains, all profits simply go straight back into restoring more steam locos and carriages).

Tickets for this starlight express must be booked in advance online, by phone (028 9024 6609) or in person from the Belfast Welcome Centre (47 Donegall Place, Belfast, BT1 5AD).

Very cool. We have a local steam train which runs Murder Mystery trips as well as Wine tastings. (This week features a locomotive done up as Thomas.)
